From the runways to the social media feed of the world’s fashion elite, one thing has been clear — bucket bags are a handbag staple that is here to stay! 2020 has been a year where we have seen classic as well as quirky iterations of the bucket from the likes of Gucci, JW Anderson, Chloé, Balmain, and other high-end luxury brands. Though bucket bags come in varied shapes and sizes, what they all have in common is a rather roomy interior, tassel or drawstring details to draw the eye and of-course convenient shoulder straps to swing them around easily.
Our gaze this week is on a versatile and trendy pick from the Italian masters of craftsmanship and all things cool — Gucci. Whilst we dive in further and tell you why this bucket bag has taken our fancy, we must say this, “You can never go wrong with a Gucci bag”.
An icon that has established itself as an all-time favourite from the vast collection of popular Gucci bags is the Marmont range. Introduced first by Alessandro Michele in 2016, this range of bags has seen covetable versions in a multitude of colours, patterns, sizes, styles and materials. It is a true expression of what the brand stands for today — a fearless attitude, rule-breaking artistry and a youthful aesthetic.
The highlighting factor of the Gucci bags, the Double G, is actually inspired by an archival detail that dates back to the 70s! Aside to the magnificent logo detail, the Marmont bags are typically found with an exterior crafted using the matelassé technique. Every creation has been designed with the idea of a cherished wardrobe that one can return to again and again.
We sigh with delight every time we gaze upon this Gucci beauty. The Marmont range expands graciously for this bucket bag that is equal parts stylish and functional. Precise and experienced hands have crafted this masterpiece in Italy using quality leather. The structured silhouette is highlighted with quilted diagonal stripes that run seamlessly throughout the exterior. A textured version of the Double G logo, known as the Torchon, appears in a light-gold hue at the front. The brand’s popular use of the colour red in the trim near the base shows immaculate restraint and provides relief to the black & beige colourway. As the Gucci bag opens with its gold-tone tipped drawstrings, it reveals a plush interior with a suede lining, two card slots and a logo-engraved keychain. The bucket is finally finished with a chain shoulder strap.
This Gucci Marmont Bucket Bag makes for an ideal companion that will never disappoint. Swing it along for sunny brunches or sophisticated dinner parties and see how other’s eyes twirl with delight and envy! Surely this little peek of our ‘Bag of the Week’ has entrapped you to take a closer look.
